The Junior High Scholastic Scrimmage team, guided by Mrs. Taylor, started their 2019-20 season on March 5. They went 5-6 with with wins against Claysburg, Hollidaysburg A, Hyndman, Northern Bedford, and Tyrone. Their only loss was against the Hollidaysburg B Team in a close 105-90 match. The team had three matches on March 6 and then concluded the season on March 11 at the IU8 Office in Altoona.

Team members include 7th graders Chloe Brown and Olivia Hess, 8th graders Canyon Neyman, Gaven Ridgway, Ava Miller, and Avery Turek, and 9th graders Emma Corrado, Zach Amato, Caedon Poe and Jack Luensmann.

In case you’re new to this concept, Scholastic Scrimmage is a competition in which students answer questions based on academic strengths. Students form many different areas and schools come together to compete. It’s kind of like playing Jeopardy, only there are team rounds during the competition.

Here is a sample of some of the problems the students had to solve relating to literature, sports/leisure, math, history/geography, and science.

Literature: A closely kept secret relating to something shameful or disgraceful is a skeleton in the ______. 

Sports/ Leisure:  What is the front of a snowboard called?

Math: How many different words are in the song Happy Birthday?

Congrats to the members of the Scholastic Scrimmage team on their successful year!
